Creative Vado HD Pocket Camcorder Review

Kevin and Olivia go in your pocket to talk about the Creative Vado HD Pocket Camcorder, and to see whether or not the li'l guy has the firepower to hang with the big boys.

What You Need to Know

  • It weighs 3.5 oz.
  • The device is only 0.6” thin
  • It’s about the same dimensions as a cell phone
  • It has weird protrusions like the lens and USB adapter
  • It doesn't have nearly as many features as the Kodak from last week
  • All of the buttons are self-explanatory and make it easy for anyone to use, but sometimes it feels like you have to mash them, which can get annoying
  • As for the software, it's just as easy to use
  • You can do minor editing and upload to YouTube or Photobucket  (we uploaded a sample video for you to take a look at on the G4TV YouTube Channel)
  • The file sizes are huge (just like all these HD pocket camcorders), so it will take a while to upload
  • Normal light footage looks about as good as the Kodak from last week; colors are vibrant and details are relatively sharp, but it does only shoot in 720p
  • It's less shaky, though, which is a big plus
  • Low light footage looks surprisingly good; you get a lot more detail than you expect without a lot of the noise that normally occurs


  • $150
  • The quality alone makes it a great buy, but its portability and ease of use are just bonuses

    LOL! I was noticing the SAME THING! She has been getting really skinny!
    Recently I found out why though... Apparently she had a Maxim cover shoot that she was preparing for so I guess she felt she needed to shed a few pounds...
    Oh wells. That's girls for ya. =p

    Olivia you have lost way to much weight so please stop , you are perfect and from what I know you can not improve on perfection . Eat a few cheeseburgers there only a buck at BK and wash them down with a strawberry/chocolate shake because only a dog wants a bone baby girl .
